The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e sports a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED screen, 5.5mm thickness, $400. But if that’s too expensive for you, there’s the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019), an affordable tablet with 1080p LCD.

The Samsung Galaxy A 10.1 (2019) is a budget offering, priced at just €210. It switches to a 10.1” LCD with 1,920 x 1,200 pixels and two Dolby Atmos speakers. The body of the tablet is still metal, but it measures 7.5mm thick.
The chipset is an Exynos 7904, which is said to also power the upcoming Galaxy A30 phone. It’s paired with just 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage (storage is expandable, RAM isn’t).
This tablet also has pogo pins, so you can hook up a keyboard cover or use the charging dock. Otherwise, you charge the 6,150mAh battery over USB-C.
The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) will have an LTE version, though at €270 you might consider tethering instead.
